Angry Problems installing Samba-SWAT


I was having problems configuring my Samba and someone in the Forum suggested using SWAT to make it easier. I amusing Fedora 3 and I have tried to install Samba-SWAT several times form different sites and I keep getting the same message.

When I try installing Samba-SWAT I get the messages saying it was unable to do so because it needs Samba. When I try installing Samba it says it needs Samba-common but cannot find it. When I try installing Samba-Common it says it cannot because it cannot find Samba-Client and when I try installing Samba-Client it says it needs Samba. Its like a viscous cycle and I do not know what to do next.

All of them (Samba, Samba-Client, Samba-Common and Samba-SWAT) are from the Fedora Project website for Fedora 3 and all have the same version number and are rpm packages.

Please can you help.
